New Posting Rules

Postby snarfblatt on Tue Jun 02, 2009 8:18 am

In an effort to alleviate some of the spam we've been getting lately we've made a change.

All new users will be required to have their first post approved by a Moderator or Administrator before they are allowed to post freely. This change shouldn't affect any of our existing users, but should keep the spammers at bay.

We've also made a change to Private Messages. There has been a maximum of 5 recipients set. Again, the idea is that the spammers won't be able to send out their messages en masse any more, therefore they should go away.

We'll continue to monitor the situation and hope that these changes will make for a better experience on the site.

Is there any way you can make it so that all flyingengi's posts also need to be approved first?

First of all... welcome to AOFroobs.

Secondly, this mechanism was put into place because of major spam issues. It is a bit of an inconvenience to new members, however, constantly reading viagra and cialis ads were more of an inconvenience to existing members.

If you have further questions about this policy or others, feel free to let me know.
